After two years away, NeNe Leakes is returning to The Real Housewives of Atlanta for its upcoming 10th season.
The 49-year-old confirmed the news on Twitter as she tweeted out a photo of herself wearing a crown holding a champagne glass and a peach. After leaving in Season 7, she returned the following year to accompany the ladies on a trip to Jamaica.
NeNe will be making her return to the show as a part-time cast member as she is juggling different business ventures. OK! Magazine reported that the reality star was offered $2.5 million to come back, so we’re thinking she’ll be getting her money’s worth of drama.

Kim Zolciak will be joining NeNe in returning for the shows 10th anniversary as a part-time cast member. The 39-year-old signed on the dotted line back in April and was on ‘RHOA’ for five seasons and made a brief appearance in season nine. She also had a long-running Bravo show ‘Don’t Be Tardy’.
The news comes as Phaedra Parks was fired from the show after the Season 9 reunion drama regarding a rumor about one of the housewives. This could open the door for one of Zolciak or Leakes to return full time.
Real Housewives is currently filming for Season 10, which is expected to premiere in the fall.
